|TRAVINIA ITALIAN KITCHEN & WINE BAR
Open daily for lunch and dinner, this community favorite features contemporary Italian-American cuisine that is sure to delight any diner. Travinia prides itself on fresh ingredients, as well as an “unmistakable pride and passion for excellence,” as they explain on their website.
In addition to the generous daily 3-7 pm happy hour, patrons can enjoy great weekly specials such as 25 percent off bottled wine on Tuesday evenings and live jazz and half off select martinis on Wednesday nights. On the last Thursday of each month, Travinia hosts a special Girls’ Night Out Pamper Party which, for $25 per guest, includes a mini-manicure, appetizers and dessert. Menu highlights featuring regional ingredients include a crisp, fresh Granny Smith apple salad, several mouth-watering veal and seafood dishes, Sinatra chicken, and delicious handmade desserts. With an impressive wine list and a chic bar featuring creative concoctions, Travinia’s is a great pick for a relaxing dinner or a fun night out with friends.
In operation since 2002, Travinia boasts nine locations, and owners Mark Craig and Kevin Cox have a vested interest in giving back to the community. Their philanthropy includes local children’s charities and nonprofits, notably Arizona’s Children’s Charity and their sponsorship of the Arizona Open, an annual golf fundraiser.
To hear them tell it, “While touring Napa Valley, [we] re-imagined how the love of flavorful food and [our] passion of wine could become a truly classic experience… an ever-changing offering of classic recipes combined in Italian tradition.” Travinia’s distinct menu and enjoyable atmosphere certainly reflect the classic experience Mark and Kevin were after, and it seems our best-of voters agree.
